Fort Jackson will host a military career fair from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 5 at the Solomon Center on Fort Jackson.

More than 60 employers and colleges will participate in the event, which is open to all military personnel, military spouses, veterans and Department of Defense civilian employees.

Those attending the event should dress in business or professional clothing and bring along multiple copies of their resume. No copier will be available.

The career fair is sponsored by Army Community Services Employment Readiness Program and Soldier for Life: Transition Assistance Program – formerly the Army Career and Alumni Program.

Job fairs are held at the fort about twice a year through the assistance program or through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes program. Hiring veterans is becoming more of a priority as the U.S. military dramatically shrinks after 13 years of war.

For more information call (803) 751-5452.
